Vacuum cast coil (VCC) transformers

Hitachi ABB Power Grids’ vacuum cast coil transformers use the most technologically advanced design to support the extreme conditions present in chemical processing, extra heavy traction, and heavy industrial applications. Hitachi ABB Power Grids has design and manufacturing flexibility to produce oval or round shaped core and coil assemblies for optimum space utilization.

These transformers are almost maintenance free, and they are manufactured in accordance with industry and international standards.

The VCC dry-type transformers are moisture-proof, suitable for operation in humid or heavily polluted environments. They are the ideal transformers for operation in environments with humidity higher than 95 % as well as at temperatures down to -25 °C. There is less space and less civil work needed, no special safety features are required (fire detection). They are maintenance free and extend transformer life due to low thermal and dielectric ageing. It can be installed closer to the point of consumption, reducing load cable losses. Safe and environmental friendly, reduced environmental contamination and zero risk of leakage of flammable or contaminating substances. High resistance to short circuits and high capacity to support overload. They are capable of withstanding the most severe of rolling and vibrating conditions.

Get to know more

The EcoDesign Directive of the European Union and the related Regulation 548/2014 for transformer losses requires manufacturers to publish on the internet information on rated power, load loss, no-load loss and weight and type of the major components of typical transformers, which are compliant with the Regulation. Such typical values are specified under EU EcoDesign product information for Tier 1 requirements.

Load loss and no-load loss values are maximum values with 0% upwards tolerance. If a value exceeds at factory routine testing the maximum value, the transformer is not compliant with the Regulation and it is not allowed to use it in the EU. 

Note that the values indicated for the weights depend on each specific transformer specification and may vary. The values also depend on the exact grade of electrical steel to be used. Transformer designs and materials used are constantly changing with changing materials prices. 

Hitachi ABB Power Grids can also provide transformers according to Tier 2 loss requirements and even lower losses. Hitachi ABB Power Grids is the leading manufacturer for ultra-efficient transformers, as a company being itself fully dedicated to energy efficiency, and able to consult you for energy efficiency and sustainability.
